Why is it troublesome to plug an RGB into a MOBO?

Those aren't the easiest to plug in for sure...:D
Well good thanks for the input...I have 4 (or 3) and could only get one to plug in...even my daughter who can see at the micron level could not plug it in...:(

I was hoping someone had a special trick....
I'm slightly bending RGB pins so they won't move. The RGB/ARGB connectors are a total fail. I have no idea how someone could design it this way.
Yes, they suck. The pins bed too easily and are impossible to line up. I have better luck with USB Type-A on the first try.
I wish they would put framing around it like they do other ports (think most USB 2.0 headers)... That would help with aligning them/preventing bends and getting it right the first time.
Yep they're garbo.

The easiest answer is to be part of the anti-RGB group! And save money doing so!
My trick is to not buy RGB. All those flashing lights distract me from my high speed super twitch gaming like solitaire.
I have RGB on the RAM & motherboard with my gamer, but my case looks like this...


So you can't see the lights inside. :rofl:
